Since its founding in 1913 Delta Sigma Theta has clearly distinguished itself as a public service organization that boldly confronts the challenges of African Americans and, hence, all Americans. Over the years, a wide range of programs addressing education, health, international development, and strengthening of the African American family have evolved.

After all the business is conducted, the Mission of the Arts and Letters Committee is to stimulate the interest in the arts and other cultural enrichment activities. The Focus is to promote, foster, cultivate, perpetuate and preserve the Arts and Letters of African Americans in Fine Arts, Literary, and Performing Arts.
